In life, we say hellos and goodbyes all the time. Some greetings and farewells are easy and meaningless. Others are tear- fuelled and difficult.
Knowing when to shoo away a pair of shoes is one of the hard bye-byes we say!
I would not call myself a hoarder in general. But with shoes, it is a whole new story. For some reason I always justify keeping that old, unstylish pair because, one day they might look good with something… I make excuses and tell myself that even though the embellishment on one of shoes is gone, it is fine and I may actually wear it one day.
I guess we all need a little courage sometimes so that we know how to say goodbye to a pair of shoes. If you’ve worn a shoe well, it should be easier. Thank the shoe for all the good times and service over the years, but it’s time to move on.
If you haven’t worn a shoe well, and you never wear it ever ask yourself: is the shoe ugly? Does it match anything? Could it realistically be handy to hold onto? Once you’ve answered these questions you’ll know what to do. I got rid of 2 pairs.
